the chaos has people ran from the shooting. it effected travelers in other terminals as well. >> we had to evacuate to the other side of the terminal. >> there were about 746 flights that were affected. >> reporter: passengers were loaded on to buses to clear the area. inbound and outbound flights were halted for a while. they believe paul ciancia acted alone, but can't say why he did it. everyone on the floor. on the floor now. >> another look at that chilling exclusive cell phone video from tmz. seconds later as you can see, passengers poured out of the gate areas as police urged them
to run outside. some of those passengers were injured trying to escape and get to safety. >> this was all happening at l.a.x., but there's a ripple effect across the world. flight delays and diversions from some of our local airports. we begin with impact at san jose. >> reporter: at least 27 flights between the bay area and l.a.x. have been cancelled. that number is expected to grow. >> i made a big circle. >> reporter: it's been a long day for a richmond resident. >> i started in oakland, was supposed to go to l.a.x., from l.a.x. to austin. ended up in ontario where they told us to get off the plane, go get our luggage, and recheck
back in. so i'm back here. >> reporter: five hours of travel time only to end up back in the bay area. she's hoping to finally catch a flight to austin this evening. >> just tired. >> reporter: many airline passengers were boarding or were already on when the shooting started. >> there was about seven. that was unusual. >> we turned to the news channel and all the news channels had it on there. we were just following it live as it was happening. >> anxiety, wondering what happened, if anyone was hurt, what exactly a security breach means, is it going to effect many airports? >> reporter: travelers should check ahead to make sure their flight time has not changed and give them extra time to get up
through the newly stepped up security. >> 29 flights a day between those six airlines. >> reporter: it is quite calm here at san jose international airport because of all those delays. many of the flights weren't even all the way full. that's because of all of those issues. we did find one person who came in on a tucson flight. there were only eight people on the plane because they weren't able to pick up additional passengers from l.a.x. let's go out to sfo. what's the situation out there? >> we're standing right next to the virgin america ticket counter. the air carrier has a number of flight that is travel to and
from l.a.x. just an hour after the shooting, sfo starting feeling the effects. in total, nearly a dozen flights to and from los angeles were cancelled, leading to long lines at the virgin america counter and others. passengers, check with your carrier before heading to the airport and consider flying to other southern california airports. some still had problems. >> it said flight on time for the longest time. i kept going. i parked and got on the shuttle over to the airport. as soon as i got on that shuttle i checked again and the flight was cancelled. >> it's also possible to look at some of the other airports around the los angeles area. there's long beach, there's
burbank. >> reporter: as far as security is concerned, i'm told out of an overabundance of caution, the san francisco police department is going to be doing extra patrols around the terminals. that's likely going to be a short-term measure. we should not forget about oakland airport. all southwest flights to and from l.a.x. were delayed. this story continues to develop each hour. for the latest, we invite you to go to our website. traffic tonight is moving slowly, but smoothly after a smoky and fiery mess this morning. a car fire shut down one area of the tunnel. some drivers abandoned their cars and walked out to get some fresh air.
the fire was extinguished quickly. several people went to the hospital with complaints of smoke inhalation. the family of a 13-year-old boy shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy has filed a legal claim against the sonoma county board of supervises. it does not specify an amount that's being sought. a sheriff's department mistook a 13-year-old boy toy gun as an assault rifle. we'll take you to a live gathering to remember andy lopez in santa rosa. a drunk driver hit and killed a cal trans worker earlier this morning. it happened near scott creek
road. cal trans crews were picking up cones when a car veered into a closed lane and hit two workers. one worker was pinned against his work truck and was pronounced dead on the scene. his father spoke to nbc bay area this morning. >> we'll do some counseling and just try to stick all together. try not to do -- some negative things. they don't pay off. just ask god to help us through this. >> obviously a difficult time. the second worker has minor injuries. the driver was arrested for drunk driving. bart workers hit the ballot box today to finalize their new contract. it is expected to be approved. workers showed up throughout the day to vote on the proposal. the new contract would give them
a 12.5% raise over the next few years. in walnut creek today, a group of angry bart riders turned in 20,000 signatures called for a statewide ban on transit strikes. >> we certainly would like the unions and management to work it around the bargaining table, but if they fail to do that, the riders should not be held responsible for that failure. >> the ban on transit strikes would lead to oppressive management and unaddressed safety concerns. the voting results will be tonight at 11:00. if you want to walk or bike the bay bridge, get there earlier. it will be open only 7:00 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. the new hours will last until
march. another change, the light display on the bay bridge will soon shine all night long. since it was turned on in march, they've been on every day from 2:00 a.m. until dawn. the group got the time extended from dusk until dawn starting tonight. the latest involving the health scare on the stanford campus. what officials are doing to contain a virus outbreak. new cuts to federal food stamp programs may soon mean more people will be coming here to the local food bank. sunny and warmer across the bay area. really couldn't argue with weather like this today. a live shot shows clear skies across the golden gate bridge. we have big weekend changes, including a cooldown and also some windy weather.
more than 4 million californians who rely on food stamps have less money on their cards beginning today. a family of four now receives $36 less a month. this will put pressure on local area food barvnks. this is already a busy time for our food banks. >> reporter: it certainly is. $36 a month may not sound like a whole lot, but it is for these families. that is why the second harvest food bank is expecting they're going to have to soon feed a lot more people. this 56-year-old is already on a shoe string budget. losing some of his food money
will be stuff. every ye-- because of these new cuts, the agency is gearing up to help even more people. >> we tend to see an increase in need through the holidays every year. we're concerned that that increase this year is going to be greater than ever before. >> reporter: with even more government cuts to the food stamp program, second harvest will struggle to meet these increased demands. there are 51,000 people in santa clara county alone who use food stamps. if all of those people come here for a little bit extra food, that's going to be a huge, huge demand. stanford university has shut down one of its dining halls to
prevent the spread of a mysterious illness. the santa clara county health department has dispatched a team of investigators to the university. they believe it is the noro virus. it is one month after the launch of the obama care website and the number of people enrolled has been disappointing. congress releasing documents today showing problems with the site. it only allowed six people to enroll on the first day and 242 on the second day. now critics are pointing out another issue. they claim the affordable health care act is cancelling current policies. >> people are tired of politicians like the president making promises they can't keep.
>> so many people have had crummy plans that didn't give them mental health services. all that goes away on january 1st. >> we have learned as many as 11 million people will receive cancellation letters. their current plan lacks minimum benefit standards set by the afford health care act. new information out today shows nurses are as good as doctors. researchers say nurses and midwives can do as good of a job as doctors and patients often like them better. nurses are especially good at delivering babies and treating patients with chronic diseases. there is a doctor shortage and nurses are more affordable. the premature birth report card is out and the united states got a "c" grade. 11.5% of babies were born
premature in 2012. experts don't know exactly why the rate has dropped. despite the lower rate of premature births, the united states still lags behind other countries. wax up your skis or your snow board. it is time to hit the slopes. a resort opened at noon today with some help from manmade snow. it's november 1st. >> we are so excited to be the first ones open here in california. our crews have been working around the clock. >> if the conditions remain cold, they hope to remain open this whole weekend. >> everyone loves to shred. that's what he said. >> i can't shred.
i just kind of snowplow down the mountain. it is looking good. even a few snow showers possible. one more day, that's it, of this warmer weather. we're going to track some wind building into that forecast. let's get you into that first look forecast as we head throughout that saturday. you will notice it will be clear here, pretty much at the coast, by the bay. little bit cool and crisp to start. 11:00 a.m., clouds will filter in. eventually we'll get some warming in here. you can see clear skies. that forecast update again will be increasing wind here across the south bay at this point. we'll also take you off to the north. what you are going to see here in san francisco, we haven't had any october rain, but we are tracking a storm coming up in

as we head throughout thursday, next thursday, we've got some rainfall off to the north. it is going to be brought down to parts of the north bay. i do even think at this point there's about a 50% chance we could see that rain push down here to the east bay and the south bay and the peninsula as well. all of october didn't have any rainfall at all. 76 inland on saturday. 69 by sunday. 60s as we head throughout tuesday of next week. by next friday, temperatures cool off again to the coldest weather on that seven-day forecast with mid 60s. we'll see that possibility of rain moving back into the forecast for friday as well. for that weekend forecast, saturday, that's the day to make all your plans. sunday, i'm calling it a movie
